The new year for Buttechno started with 2 releases - Minimal Cuts on Anthony Naples’ label Incienso and an ambient album La Maison De La Mort dropped on prolific British imprint Berceuse Heroique.

La Maison De La Mort refers to Eduard Artemyev’s electronic soundscapes, the Chiastic Slide era of Autechre, as well as Peter Kember's best work. "It could be a spiked film noir soundtrack… and it’s also great because it sounds like a late night walk around Moscow (at least to us)," says the label.

La Maison De La Mort is available in a limited edition and consists of 2 LPs with artwork by Will Bankhead from The Trilogy Tapes.
